NSF Graduate Fellow, Helen Wills Neuroscience
I received my B.S. in Neuroscience and Chemistry from the University of Kentucky, where I worked as an undergraduate researcher in the labs of Dr. Jeffrey Osborn and Dr. D. Allan Butterfield. After graduating, I worked as a research technician at the University of Kentucky in the lab of Dr. Matthew Gentry, where I studied glycogen metabolism in neurological diseases, before beginning graduate school at UC Berkeley in Fall 2022. In the Dillin Lab, I am interested in questions surrounding the communication of stress responses between cells in the central nervous system, particularly between glia and neurons.
